yea, that would be my guess.
Well, go to one that you know does good work.
the anti-roll bar you can do yourself if you wanted to.

Go to sears and get yourself a floor jack and jackstands. You can install the swaybar on a ramp, but you need jackstands to change out the springs and shocks. This is all DIY.

But if you have to go to a mechanic, get someone who will actually use a torque wrench. There are specific torque specs on all your new parts. They will more than likely botch it up with an air hammer at the muffler shop.

Also make sure the tech has a clue. I saw this moron try to use an allen key for the torq screws on my buddy's saab.

Boxerchip: if you have ramps or a friend has ramps that would be 10 times easier, just back it up onto them (as i did)...but if you have to jack it up use jack stands put them under the cars jack points..(wont be as high up as on ramps but still do able) then just read the instructions....i too just installed mine 2days ago and wow was it easy and well worth it !!! i love taking corners now so smooth and fun!!

Tweak: i am going to order without cat....mount that up...drive around, then order a high flow cat from Jegs or Summit....Taliaferro sells the race cat combo for 2bills extra...yeah right.....you can get one at jegs for like 75$...i will let you all know how it turns out...

i am gunna try and call them now....

im impatiant

iwantaviggen- Try ebay for that high flow. They have 3" high flow cats on there for sale at $34. It seems to be the regular price as well.

Im thinking about getting my DP custom made, and having the 3" welded on later if its too loud.
